Badgers Cottage is a beautiful, comfortable cottage, perfectly situated on a quiet country lane with access to plenty of walks from the cottage or a short drive to the coast and other picturesque villages. We can't fault anything about our stay and hope to return again soon. Classic Cottages team were helpful with a telephone query prior to booking and the cottage was very easy to book.

A lovely relaxing place to stay

August 2020

We had a really lovely stay- the property is beautiful and in a gorgeous location and all the interiors are very high quality (the bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in!) It is located perfectly for trips along the east or west of Dorset and only 4 miles from Bridport and the supermarkets and amenities there. Highly recommended.

Great location; the owners live in the nearby farmhouse and couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. They made us very welcome whilst not intruding. The spacious garden is a bonus in a property like this & the woodland walk was lovely. The quality of fittings & equipment was excellent.

Plenty of lovely walks including woods within the grounds.Many attractions close by and Bridport for shopping including a Waitrose. Not impressed with Hive Beach cafe despite other rave notices, the food was beach cafe style but the prices were very high for this quality. Spyways Inn was very good value in a dramatic location

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks for your review of Badgers Cottage - it's wonderful to hear you had a great time overall and managed to visit some amazing places during your holiday. We were sorry to hear that The Hive Beach Café hadn't been quite what you were looking for but really pleased you found the Spyways Inn instead. The Marquis of Lorne is also nearby which is great for children and walkers alike. Bryony, Customer Support

The location and views were fantastic, the garden was a great space for our daughter to run around and the animals were such a bonus!
